Warning: What you are about to see is really pathetic. This is the before picture of our office.
When we moved, we stuck the desk in this room along with a cedar chest full of extra linens. It’s been a year and we haven’t installed curtains or hung a single picture. This room has come a long way from the pink room I showed you last week (here). Like the other two bedrooms, we painted this room in Olympic’s Almond Paste as a quick fix to get rid of the pink.
I decided an easy idea to make the room a little warmer was to install some curtains and add a chair. I also felt like this might be a good spot for the guitars. The guitars have been in the basement since we’ve moved. I thought once we had a house we would play them more but I guess if they are out of sight they are out of mind.
Below is the online layout I made. The funny little projector symbols next to the desk are my way of showing the guitar stands.
While the idea of making curtains sounded fun (for like two minutes), I knew I’d hate myself for taking on yet another project during staycation week. We ended up buying some new curtains in a fun green and hanging them with some hardware we already had in the basement from our last house. We also hung up the adorable mirrors that my mother-in-law painted.
I then swiped the Mishu’s chair from the family room since it’s not living up to my standards. This chair is armless so it’s perfect for playing guitar. We also bought a much needed floor lamp for the corner and added some additional artwork that we had never hung after the move.
